We drove here in the dark from a hotel about 2 miles up the road. It was March, snowing, and the parking lot was full on a Sunday night. That told us something right there. The seafood specials were fresh - not something frozen and shipped in. The service was quick. The waitress pointed out the specials - which I think is the way to go - but even if you don't like it, one of our party tried the standbys and were happy.
There are a lot of choices on the menu, and prices are affordable. You aren't paying for fancy ambiance. There's a fireplace inside - for some of that - yet the key is the food. The atmosphere is not intimate, but it is not noisy either. For food, they go for quality not quantity.
You can do better at a fancy, expensive restaurant - yet for a small town in Maine - this was unexpected for very good food at an excellent price.
Finally, the dessert was huge (quantity) - and if you get the blueberry pie - you know you're tasting a Maine specialty!
